Transport Yourself the Earth Friendly Way
Walking, biking, scooting and using public transportation (bus, ferry) reduces the amount of pollution in our cities, leading to fewer greenhouse gases and cleaner, more breathable air. Using public transportation also provides economic benefits for our communities.
Walking or biking not only gets you moving physically, but it’s free, there’s no finding a parking spot, and you can stay socially distant. Plus, with Alameda Slow Streets found all around the city, you can enjoy a leisurely stroll or ride without worrying about traffic.
This Earth Day, whether you walk, bike, scoot, or hop on the bus or ferry, commit to using some form of sustainable transportation, or carpool, at least a couple of trips a week. Your body and the Earth will thank you!
